Having flown over the sound, we crossed the road to this Cafe. We were given a great welcome, the food was excellent, buffalo wings, steak cooked perfectly, fish and chips, followed by Key Lime Pie, and Ice cream to follow. More of a restaurant than a cafe.

We visited the Bay Street this past weekend after swearing off it about 4 years ago. Our waitress was obviously new and it wasn't her fault that she wasn't trained. She took our wine order and then five minutes later reappeared with "What wine was it that you ordered?" We sat in view of the kitchen and could see both... More

I ordered a starter Caesar salad with lasagna as my main. I got my salad with my lasagna and the server looked at me and said "sorry". Worst Caesar salad ever. Big chunks of romaine, no roasted garlic, no bacon and yes"you won't believe this dressing", no zest. I swear it was Renees. The lasagna noodles were of the no... More

I stopped at this restaurant because it has a nice view of the harbour. The service was ok, but the Caesar salad was just lettuce, croutons and very little dressing. When I asked if there was supposed to bacon bits, onions and cheese, they said that bacon costed extra, but I could have more cheese. The appetizer size salad was... More

Fantastic location, and a great verandah (which means a roof and blinds to keep out the rain) to have a drink and a snack and watch the boats. Food is OK, nachos and apps OK if you just want something to soak up the beer or wine before getting back into your boat. THey certainly could do better, but the... More

Wow the service was so bad - the waitress never brought my drink despite being reminded, and even though our friends arrived before us and ordered our food we had to wait 10 minutes to get the waitress' attention and another 10 minutes before she actually brought the food and you could tell the fries had been re-fried to the...

Very attractive seafood restaurant just down Bay Street from our bed and breakfast. Seeing as it was Thanksgiving weekend and we showed up at 8pm we had the place practically to ourselves. The food was excellent and so was our friendly efficient waiter. It was too cold to sit outside on the porch but it looked delightful. The cafe is... More

There were flies everywhere...we should have left. I had the French onion soup. Good. Others had the chowder...and had stomach issues later. Our server was abysmal. No spunk. No personality... Oh well, not again.

We came there for a lunch on a sunny day. The location is quite nice, watching activity on the water either from the terrace or from inside at a window place. The food was simple but adequate, but the place looks a bit shabby.

Wife and I had lunch there. Selection is very good and what we ordered was very good. Staff was friendly and you're near the water.
